I was delighted while perusing our crowded blogosphere when I came upon a blog named Fig Jam and Lime Cordial. I thoroughly enjoyed Celia’a post “In My Kitchen”. When I got to the end I realized she was encouraging us to write a similar post based on what is in our kitchens. After checking out a few of the other bloggers who jumped in I decided it would be a nice diversion today. Celia, thanks for the entertaining idea and the invite to join the fun.
If you think this is something you’d enjoy run over to Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and read her instructions for doing so. I had a blast deciding which items currently in my kitchen to share with you. If you choose to accept this mission be sure and link back to The Orange Bee as I would love to see “What’s In Your Kitchen”.
In My Kitchen: is a slab of handmade cheese from Goldern, Switzerland. Made by a family named Hoogler, who have been pasturing their cows high in the Swiss mountains for years during the summer and bringing them back down to the valley in winter. Swiss cows are happy cows and their cheese is indescribably delicious. A gift from my traveling friend, Carol.
In My Kitchen: is a bottle of champagne. One never knows when an occasion to celebrate will arise. I might just pop this cork when I open the aforementioned cheese, as the cheese is worthy of celebration.
In My Kitchen: is a drawer full of Pomegranates. My lovely neighbor from New Zealand, where two of my bee hives reside has a very productive Pomegranate bush. She is a generous, fun-loving woman who always brings me a bag full. I add them to salads, yogurt and especially enjoy snacking on them.
In my kitchen: are Wellness and Olive Leaf capsules. A natural way to fight off the seasons bugs that are so easily spread around.
In my kitchen: are spices from Africa. Clove, Cinnamon. Chili, and Coriander, a gift from a dear friend who visited Africa recently.
In my kitchen: “The Bee Keeper’s Bible” A lovely book given to me by a childhood friend who I still enjoy hanging out with and talkin’ girl talk! It is full of bee keeper information, recipes, and lovely illustrations as shown in the photo.
I hope to see some of you sharing what is: “In My Kitchen”. Later in the week I plan to post from my latest Central Market cooking class, Dessert With The Orange Bee.
